Summary Judgment and Striking Out in International Arbitration – Panacea or Pandora’s Box? A Debate in the Context of the SIAC Rules

03 November 2016 | London


The Singapore International Arbitration Centre (SIAC) is the first major international commercial arbitration centre to introduce a rule that permits the early dismissal of a claim or defence that is manifestly without legal merit, or manifestly outside the jurisdiction of the Tribunal.

In this debate, our speakers will consider the reasoning behind introducing this power in the new Rules and the merits and dangers of such a mechanism, as well as the willingness of arbitrators to make use of it.
